Sometimes mistakes are a good thing

Recommended Posts

I was making a game table. It needed to be antique. I marked, cut, dyed and carefully splattered dye across the board. It was time to seal the surface and go on to the antiquing. I grabbed my spray lac and depressed. Horror! It was not spray lac. It was a honey oak dye I'd used for some trim in our kitchen. Wait a minute.... That looks pretty darned good! So I sprayed the entire surface with the honey oak dye. I'm very pleased with it and more important the new owner is too. Needless to say, I will be checking a bit more carefully when grabbing a can of spray in the future.

The customer's is always the most important opinion. Great save!

What is it that Ron Ross used to say...... We don't make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents. :)
